TCU Swim and Dive finish the first half of the season on a high note

TCU got off to a phenomenal start, securing countless gold medals and picking up multiple team wins in the first half of the 2023-24 Swim and Dive season. The following recap will provide medal counts and accomplishments from each of this season’s meets that were completed before 2024.

The TCU Men’s Swim team has experienced a roller coaster of a season to date.

As the Frogs prepare for their most anticipated competition yet at the Big 12 Championships, the subsequent recap of the first half of the season will provide an update on how some of the top swimmers and divers have been performing. 

FSU Classic 

The 2023-24 season began on Sept. 30 with the Florida State University Classic in Tallahassee, Florida. While the Horned Frogs would secure seven first-place finishes at the meet, only two of these would come from the men’s team that weekend.

Graduate student Piotr Sadlowski earned one of these gold medals, with a first-place time of 47.96 in the 100-meter butterfly. That finish would earn him the fourth fastest time in school history in that race. Also winning gold at the FSU Classic was freshman standout Kito Camossato. The first-year Frog made an impact in his first collegiate meet, swimming to a first-place time of 55.43 in the 100-meter breaststroke.  

 TCU vs. BYU

The second meet of the season saw TCU secure its first team win of the season over BYU by a score of 200-172. TCU swept the podium in the 100-meter breaststroke, with Jadon Wuilliez, Kito Camossato, and Nikola Koltin placing first, second, and third, respectively.  

Milan Fabian also swam to gold medals in both the 200 and 500-meter freestyle. Sophomore Edgar Cicanci added to the gold medals with his own first place finish in the 100-meter backstroke.  

Meanwhile, Geremia Freri would finish first in the 200 Individual Medley, securing the final gold medal and the win for the Frogs. 

Taking home first place on the diving side in the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard was Oliver Cazaly. He bested his personal record on the 3-meter with a score of 353.85 and placed second in the platform competition. Cazaly also earned zone cuts in both events, which secured him a place in the NCAA Diving Championships.

Mizzou Invitational

The next meet on the Horned Frogs’ schedule found the team in Columbia, Missouri for the 2024 Mizzou Invitational. Piotr Sadlowski started off day one with a bang, as he swam to a first-place finish in the 100-meter butterfly.  

Geremia Freri continued his torrid streak, as he not only broke his own school record in the 200 IM from the previous meet, but also earned his first NCAA B cut of the season. With his outstanding performance in Columbia, Freri ensures he will compete at the 2024 NCAA Championships.  

Milan Fabian also earned a gold medal in the 500-meter freestyle, and Oliver Cazaly placed first in the 1-meter springboard. Wrapping up day one, the 400-meter Medley Relay team broke the TCU record with their time of 3:08.86.  

Day two began with the 800-meter freestyle-relay team comprised of Luke DiMiceli, Milan Fabian, Geremia Freri, and Nick Rozenberg, taking home the gold.  

Oliver Cazaly kept up his elite diving with his second gold medal of the invitational in the 3-meter springboard to cap off the second day. On the final day, Aaron Wilmes placed in the top ten in TCU history in the 1650 freestyle.

Additionally, Elliott Dillon set a career high and the fourth best score in program history with a 308.30 on the platform. An all-around team effort for TCU allowed the men to take home their second win of the season and move into the new year on a high note.
